Remove Eshopcom (Virus Removal Instructions)

removal by Jake Doevan - - | Type: Adware

How does Eshopcom virus act?

Eshopcom is a computer program, which exhibits various promotional content on the computer screen when the user browses the Internet. Ads by Eshopcom usually show up when the computer user browses through shopping-related websites; they can appear in a form of pop-up ads or banners. Sometimes, Eshopcom ads appear as in-text links that pop an ad once user points the mouse cursor on them. However, these advertisements are easily recognizable as they have a specific line above or beyond them, which informs what provides these ads. Look out for ads marked as “ads by Eshopcom,” “powered by Eshopcom” or “Eshopcom deals,” because they are deceptive. Commonly they showcase incredibly great shopping deals, discount codes, coupons, price comparisons and similar content because they are generated based on user’s recent search queries and browsing history. Unfortunately, they are not meant to suit user’s needs; they are made to draw victim’s attention and convince him/her to click on the ad. Clicking on Eshopcom ads can result in redirects to unreliable third-party websites. Eshopcom adware

Why does Eshopcom redirect users to suspicious websites?

You should not rely on Eshopcom ads because they seek to drive traffic to particular web pages. For this reason, Eshopcom PUP tracks user’s browsing history, clicks, terms used in web searches, and similar information. It seeks to create catchy advertisements that would lure the victim into clicking on them. Generally, these ads conceal deceptive hyperlinks, which lead the user to predetermined websites and almost never to sites related to the ad content.

Questions about Eshopcom

Be careful; you can never know what websites you are going to be redirected to. While some of Eshopcom related sites might be safe, others can be highly questionable. For safety reasons, avoid installing any files from such websites, and also do not provide any personal information on such sites. In case you do not want to get Eshopcom ads anymore, consider removing this adware with an anti-spyware program. You can use Reimage for that.

How did Eshopcom hijack our PC?

Just like other ad-supported PUPs, Eshopcom spreads via freeware and shareware. It travels alongside other free programs as bundled software; bundling is a legitimate software distribution method. However, some computer users call this technique unfair.

So how does bundling work? A software bundle looks like a single program at the first sight. However, its installation wizard provides information about additional programs included, but due to the fact that the bigger part of PC users tend to install new applications in a rush, they often skip this information and install additional software without an intention to do that. To prevent installing objectionable software, you should always opt for Custom or Advanced installation mode when installing software. These options expand the “Settings” window and disclose what optional programs will be installed alongside the primary program. Then you can opt these programs out.

How to remove Eshopcom?

We can hardly think of any positive features of this program. It only causes annoyance and slows down the computer system. The good side is that this program can be easily removed. You can remove Eshopcom virus using an anti-spyware software, or manually. If you are a security-minded computer user, consider installing a proper computer security software to clean it from threats and increase its resistance to spyware/malware infections.
